Why Is My GPS Showing Inaccurate Locations?

We got our S7 phones in November and absolutely love them.  But in the past week or so, both my husband's S7 and my S7 have had GPS issues (Indianapolis, IN area).  The GPS has us off the map by 1-2 blocks or more.  We've rebooted our phones.  We've also gone into Google Maps and done the "figure eight" calibration.  Rebooted again.  Nothing seems to be working.  Following directions from Google Maps is proving almost impossible!  And again, it's on BOTH of our phones, so I'm wondering if there is a problem with Verizon?

Similar issue in Los Angeles area, end of January 2017. My S7 is a replacement from about a month ago, not sure if it's a defect.

My issue seems to have magically gone away.  There were two weeks where the GPS went a little "haywire", but it's been working for the past week or so.  Thank you everyone for your responses; kathy65793, I will keep your links in case this happens again.
